Charlie, you’re all heart!  

Thank you for making Guest smile.  It’s been a rough day  I tried to cheer her up by burping in her face after my fish oil pill but that didn’t work!

Post echo update:

It could be worse.  It could be a heckuva lot worse.

Even the cardiologist said she didn't expect this diagnosis from his xrays and exam.  She said he has "idiopathic pulmonary hypertension."   Basically, something - we don't know what, hence the "idiopathic" - caused the blood vessels in his lungs to contrict, increasing the pressure in his heart-lung system.  This made his heart muscle work extra hard to circulate blood through his lungs, and become enlarged.   The increased pressure also causes fluid to leak from the lung tissue into the lungs themselves, which is why he was coughing up blood.   

Best news is this is something they can treat with medication. The dr said if he responds well to the meds there's no reason why he can't have a long happy life.

They are still investigating initial causes for the lung vessel constriction, but we may never know what caused it.

He also has a small hole between the atrial chambers of his heart as she could see fluids being exchanged between them where there shouldn't be.   She didn't talk very much about this so it must not be super important, as least in this context.   And we'd need an MRI to really diagnose it.

He's staying overnight on oxygen and his new meds (I don't know the names of them), and they will see how he does overnight.  His blood pressure needs to come down and be stable, but KNOT too low, which would be a whole other problem.   He also needs to be OK off his oxygen.   They are going to call in the morning with an update, and info on if/when he can come home.

We'll follow up with the cardiologist in about a week.

Thank you so much for all your prayers and good thoughts!!!  They really worked!!

Atom is a lucky lad to have such an attentive and educated Mom.  Sounds like a problem he was born with.  I sure hope medication helps.  

Today I am going plant shopping (and biscuit eating!!) with Lucy and Ann.  It seems you can do just about anything you want here at the complex, so we shall see what I walk away with. My current plan is 6 to 8 begonias, and a honeysuckle to climb my railing and attract some hummingbirds. Or perhaps clematis?  I will get Lucy and Ann to help.

We get two weather reports here—one for the mountains, and one for the rest of the area. That is kind of fun.  

I started to put up some art last night, and unwrapped a few of my purely decorative items.  Seems more like home now.  I also don’t think you’re supposed to store oil paintings wrapped in bubble wrap...

The cats act like we have always been here. You’d never know what they tolerated on this trip. I am equally amazed at them as at Sam and I for just smiling and chatting and goofing around for 14 hours in my very vibraty vehicle!

Continued :hope  For Atom.

we had a Dobe with heart disease. He did very well on meds. Lasix and something else.

Fifteen years ago I myownself contracted a nasty unknown virus which attacked my heart, lungs and kidneys. I was in heart failure, in ICU on a respirator for 3 days.  With good meds and rest I slowly recovered.  Heart took a long time and I am still on a beta blocker. My lungs will never be 100% but I certainly function just fine.

Getting the cats out of your eyes is a HOOGE improvement. The time between the last surgery and being able to order new glasses (about two weeks) is called by my Doc LaLa Land.   🤪. However there are over the counter (K Mart, drugstores etc) reading glasses in assorted powers and bifocals too so you can find something that will tide you over. 

Sending Atom white light for an Rx solution.
